Guess The Recruiting Class: Installment 11

We needed to put another of these out as the Oklahoma State Cowboys have had a flurry of activity in the last two weeks. Man, we should have left Lavocheya Cooper on the list but he was so quiet we just kind of lost track of him. That's why we are covering recruiting and not actually recruiting. You can't lose track of a prospect as good as Cooper.

The offensive line has been a good category for us but we may need to do some further research as we are running out of names on our list.

For first time readers of this feature this is our exercise of trying to guess how the Cowboys final roll call for the recruiting class of 2010 will look when they sign on the dotted line on Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010.

Our batting average started out strong and now it has leveled off. Here's a look at the scoreboard.

Players committed before we started: 3
Players that committed that we did not have listed: 2
Players we had listed that have committed: 10
Players we had listed at the time they committed: 8
Players we had listed that committed to other schools: 7

* Signifies a player that has made a verbal commitment

*QB: Johnny Deaton, 6-3, 185, 4.6, Sand Springs (Charles Page), Okla.
He threw and looked good at the Cowboys' July half-day camp. He is easily the best high school quarterback prospect in Oklahoma.

*QB: Nathan Sorenson, 6-4, 195, 4.5, Texarkana (Texas), Texas
Skipped out on that national Rivals camp in Norman to go to Stillwater with his parents and see the completed west end zone. Has now decided to defend his track and baseball state championships next spring.

*WR: Montra Nelson, 6-3, 210, 4.6, Arlington (Bowie), Texas
Nelson really drew great reviews from the Texas 7-on-7 State Championships in College Station, Texas. He is getting more compliments than ever heading into his senior season.

WR: Darius White, 6-4, 210, 4.5, Fort Worth (Dunbar), Texas
He visited OSU unofficially on July 18 and according to several sources had a great visit. He then stood out at the national combine in Florida.

*WR: Kevin Johnson, 6-2, 195, 4.4, Houston (Cy Ridge), Texas
Johnson combines size, speed, and loads of ability. He showed in June at OSU's half-day camp that he really knows how to catch the ball.

*WR: Chris Dinkins, 6-2, 210, 4.4, Tyler (Lee), Texas
Changed his commitment from TCU to OSU after an unofficial visit July 18 to Stillwater. He played safety, but will add quarterback and wide receiver. He is an excellent athlete.

*OL: Daniel Koenig, 6-6, 260, 5.1, Cape Coral, Fla.
It reportedly came down to OSU and Nebraska on the tour he made with his parents, and the Cowboys won out. He will make a really good tackle in the future.

OL: Denton Simek, 6-6, 285, 5.2, Prague, Okla.
Working hard this summer on the farm. He might very well turn out to be the best OL prospect in Oklahoma this season.

*OL: Anthony Gerron, OL, 6-3, 305, 5.0, Tyler (John Tyler), Texas
He made an unofficial on the same day as the July half-day camp and committed before leaving. Gerron is standout in basketball that can dunk. He is athletic and has quick feet.

OL: Bryce Gwynn, 6-5, 310, 5.1, Austin (McNeil), Texas
Have to admit we are just trying to pick one out of thin air here.

DT: Calvin Barnett, 6-3, 315, 5.4, Tulsa (Washington), Okla.
Barnett was at the July half-day camp and impressed with his athleticism. His mom reportedly likes OSU. Barnett is a key recruit for the Cowboys.

DT: Diamonte Wheeler, 6-2, 255, 4.95, Arlington (Bowie), Texas
Wheeler has narrowed it down to five: Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Nebraska, Kansas, and Kansas State. He says he will decide in early fall.

DT: Chris Littlehead, 6-4, 300, 5.2, Tahlequah (Sequoyah), Okla.
He would make a very attractive one technique. He plays both ways and plays well on both sides.

*DE: Chase Rome, 6-3, 285, 4.75, Columbia (Rock Bridge), Mo.
A 4-star recruit in our book. Rome is recruiting (for OSU) and recently was offered by four other schools. He's solid.

DE: Joe Okafor, 6-5, 245, 4.7, Bellaire, Texas
No relation to the Okafor at Texas or the Okafor at Texas Tech, this Okafor can really rush the passer. He is also being recruited by schools to play Division I basketball.

*LB: Stephen Maeweather, 6-3, 215, 4.6, Houston (Sharpstown), Texas
Very athletic linebacker that committed to the Cowboys early. He is perfect for OLB.

*LB: Caleb Lavey, 6-4, 214, 4.7, Celina, Texas
Another four-star kind of player and Lavey looks to be the man inside at MLB. He has worked very hard and is coming off a surgery for shin splints and nearly back to full speed.

*LB: Kris Catlin, 6-1 1/2, 215, 4.6, San Antonio (Madison), Texas
Was one of the first LBers that OSU offered and was almost always near the top of the list. He brought two of his teammates to OSU for an unofficial visit.

Star: Synjyn Days, 6-1, 200, 4.5, Powder Springs (Hillgrove), Ga.
Great kid and may be one of the Georgia kids willing to head to Big 12 country. His younger, bigger brother Jabari, is part of the equation, a good part.

CB: Eric Bennett, 5-11, 165, 4.45, Tulsa (Washington), Okla.
Part of that Tulsa Washington state champion, Bennett is a natural for corner. He was also a standout at the July 25 half-day camp.

CB: Ciante Evans, 6-0, 170, 4.45, Arlington (Seguin), Texas
Evans has been on OSU campus twice and professes to love it in Stillwater.

*CB: Larry Stephens, 6-0, 180, 4.5, Galena Park (North Shore), Texas
He is the second straight big cornerback prospect from North Shore; Andrae May is already at OSU.

*S: Deion Imade, 6-0, 175, 4.4, Rowlett, Texas
Imade made it to the July half-day camp and worked out despite already being committed. He needed to be six foot and he was for Cowboys to be interested.

*S: Lavocheya Cooper, 6-1, 188, 4.5, Arp, Texas
He is one of the premier athletes in the recruiting class. His numbers are off the chart, especially on interceptions and punt and kickoff returns.

S: Tre'Vante Porter, 6-0, 180, 4.5, Midwest City (Carl Albert), Okla.
Plans to commit in the early fall. He was the fastest camper at the July half-day camp with a 4.47 in the forty.

*Athlete: Justin Gilbert, 6-0, 178, 4.35, Huntsville, Texas
He blazed that 4.35 in camp in Texas and is rapidly rising on lots of charts and lists.
